Set within a former ironmongery which had been run by the same family since 1886, you’ll find a bustling cafe dedicated to preserving it’s historic decor and serving up delicious home-cooked food, cakes and freshly roasted coffee, nestled within the former Welsh slate town of Dolgellau.
Ideally placed for exploring the Snowdonia National Park, stepping inside you’ll be instantly amazed by the original wood panelling and shop interior from its previous use, complete with being able to set behind the former serving counter. What’s more upstairs you’ll find a vast seating area making it ideal for groups of all sizes.
For those early risers there’s a large and small breakfast available, alongside eggs on toast, omelette and a range of breakfast baps; with a veggie option too.
At lunch there’s a changing range of specials including steak baguette, Welsh rarebit and quiches, alongside their soup of the day, sandwiches, paninis, jacket potatoes, baguettes and ciabattas with a huge choice of fillings; the sun dried tomato, pesto & mozzarella is always a firm favourite with us.
Those after something sweet are in for a treat as the cakes here are superb, we highly recommend their Guinness & chocolate (pictured)! Other delights include an orange & pistachio, iced cherry Bakewell, decadent rocky road, moist rhubarb or apple, date & cranberry flapjack, chocolate tiffin and caramel or rich chocolate brownies. You’ll also find all your usual cake favourites including Victoria sponge, carrot, coffee & walnut (pictured) and lemon drizzle along with Welsh cakes (pictured) and scones (with cream tea an option of course).
Additionally there’s a superb range of cheesecakes and pies; lemon & pistachio, banoffee, pecan, rhubarb, caramel & honey, chocolate orange and our personal favourite the chocolate, caramel & marshmallow baked cheesecake.
